Kang Daniel Sues For Defamatory Comments And False Rumors + Lawyer Releases Statement
Kang Daniel’s legal representative has shared an update on taking action against defamation.
Kang Daniel’s agency KONNECT Entertainment previously announced on August 6 that legal action will be taken for malicious comments and rumors.
On August 9, his lawyer released the following statement:
Hello, this is lawyer Yeom Yong Pyo of Yulchon LLC, the legal representative of singer Kang Daniel.
Representing Kang Daniel, we filed criminal complaints today (August 9) for violations of the “Act on Promotion of Information and Communications Network Utilization and Information Protection, etc.” to the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency’s Cybercrime Investigation Unit against those who have repeatedly posted various false rumors, insulting and derogatory personal attacks, and photoshopped images with the aim of slandering Kang Daniel.
Kang Daniel explained, “I am always thankful for the affection and encouragement sent by fans, and I will accept advice and tips given with love even more humbly. However, some people who appear to have ulterior motives rely on anonymity to repeatedly spread false information and personally attack. I inevitably resulted to filing criminal complaints due to the judgment that it is not right to allow the continuation of severe defamation of myself and my fans.” Kang Daniel is currently experiencing severe emotional pain due to malicious comments.
Fans and his agency collected lots of evidence of intentional and repetitive malicious comments and false information out of the many posts on Internet communities and social media, and we plan on taking stern action for severe law violation also in the future through continuous monitoring. Thank you.
